Wireless working

So, I’ve finally managed to update almost all of the installation iBook, and finally got the time to also build the new kernel, which finally has bcm43xx support, and this finally works with my AP that last time made it not work at all, YUHUU! πŸ™‚

Now comes the difficult part, where I’m going to ask everyone’s help πŸ™‚
Being used to work with two 17” LCDs at 1280×1024, working on a 14” at 1024×768 it’s going to be difficult all in one line.
So, the first thing I’m going to do is to change the fonts to be smaller than my usuall: 8 instead of 9, I’ve also changed the toolbars to use 16×16 icons instead of 22×22, and that saves me some space, but this is not enough. I need a thin, slim style that saves me some screen real estate. I’m trying (on the desktop) Klearlook, that is a clearlook lookalike for KDE, it ain’t bed, although I don’t like the toolbars’ handlers at all. Someone has something else to suggest me? It has to be really really slim.

Other than that I’m probably going to consider KXDocker to replace the space-consuming taskbar that I’m not used on the iBook at all πŸ˜›

Anyway, I’m really happy to have the iBook now almost perfect for work, it also supports fine suspend/resume, yuhuu πŸ™‚ β€” the DWL-122 that I have as a replacement does not support suspend/resume at all.

Okay, now I should probably go to sleep, 4am and I’m tired, really really tired.
